Editing Services

Hey! My name’s Zoe; I’m a freelance copyeditor and proofreader for fiction novels and short stories but I’m open to hearing about and considering all story ideas ๐Ÿ™‚

I started my editing business in March 2020, however, from April 2021-November 2021, I have taken a break to focus on building up my book marketing business. So, if you need a book marketer too, visit my website here!

Testimonials

Zoe edited a book and was thorough in her editing. She worked diligently and carefully. Zoe reviewed her editing before submitting it back to me. She checked in regularly and was always on time. I thought that Zoeโ€™s editing was well done. I would hesitate to recommend her services.

Katrina Pavlovsky, author of Fransesca: A Remarkable Life

Zoe promptly responded to a request for a copy editor. She followed up with a phone call and after a brief discussion about the novel, Weโ€™re Not Done, she went straight to work. She checked in weekly and completed the project earlier than initially projected.

Zoeโ€™s work was thorough in the copy edit. She added additional comments that I incorporated into the editing process. Zoe was prompt, professional and responsive.  I couldnโ€™t ask for more.

Graham Duncan, author of We’re Not Done
